Student Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of the MS in Biology, students will have achieved the following goals:

  • Mastery of the Scientific Method - Independent development and mastery of problem solving skills including experimental design, execution, critical analysis, and interpretation of the results of original scientific experimentation (thesis) or experiential learning (internship).
  • Dissemination of Scientific Products - Persuasive communication and defense of significant results of original scientific investigation presented in both written and oral format at a graduate peer-professional level.
  • Utilization of the Literature - Critical evaluation of an independently accessed comprehensive body of scientific literature which is project relevant and foundational in supporting and explaining research findings in both written and oral format.
  • Development of a Relevant Knowledge Base - Development of intrinsically held fundamental field-specific knowledge which will be applied to explain and defend research findings at a level of mastery expected by peer-professionals.
  • Professionalism and Self Responsibility - Maintain a consistent professional work ethic of independently taking the initiative and motivation to produce tangible products of a quality commensurate with peer standards in graduate or professional schools or in the career field being pursued.

Upon completion of the Chemistry MS or BS/MS as part of the Graduate Programs in Natural Sciences (GPNS), students will:

  • Be able to understand and evaluate the scientific literature and use it in their courses and their research.
  • Be able to effectively communicate scientific research, both their own and information from the research literature, in written and oral fashions.
  • Develop and master the scientific problem solving skills required to define and solve basic or applied original scientific questions using the scientific method.
  • Actively engage in research/internships and discourse with the faculty in the Chemistry Department and other STEM disciplines.
  • Disseminate, in collaboration with faculty, the products of the Chemistry-MS program within the CSU-Pueblo community and with communities outside of the University in activities using their professional expertise.

Upon completion of the Biochemistry MS or BS/MS as part of the Graduate Programs in Natural Sciences (GPNS), students will:

  • Be able to understand and evaluate the scientific literature and use it in their courses and their research.
  • Be able to effectively communicate scientific research, both their own and information from the research literature, in written and oral fashions.

  • Develop and master the scientific problem solving skills required to define and solve basic or applied original scientific questions using the scientific method.

  • Actively engage in research/internships and discourse with the faculty in the Chemistry Department and other STEM disciplines.

  • Disseminate, in collaboration with faculty, the products of the Biochemistry-MS program within the CSU-Pueblo community and with communities outside of the University in activities using their professional expertise.
